    Hello chaps,

    Have some pics on my phone of when I cleaned the old girl.
    Firstly I'm using the tapatalk app for the first time, so I'm not sure if the pics wilload properly etc.

    No befores just afters, sorry.

    Firstly hosed down dirt and grime, then cleaned with car plan shampoo and a crappy wash mitt, (1 bucket method) (booo)

    Then dried with some microfibres, was pretty hot so pretty much dried itself.

    Then on to autoglym clay kit, was my first attempt at it, so a bit nervous but just cracked it out. I cut the clay in to two bits left One in warm water and used the other. All I can say is don't use the lube sparingly cause you need loads. I couldn't believe how much crap came out the lower panels, but then it is 12years old.

    After clay I wiped with microfibre and got on with autoglym super resin polish. Was child's play putting it on and taking off, lots of fillers in it to covered a few marks etc. I used gooddold elbow greace to put on polish no machine job.

    After that had a bit of a brew then cracked on with the wax, nothing special just a bit of turtlewax.

    After that I cleaned up wheels and put some tyre blackner on, and dressed the trim also.

    Ok so below is finished product.(if they upload)
